Shedding Light on New Integration Opportunities

June 09, 2022

Now more than ever, customers are seeking innovative and sustainable solutions to help improve their buildings. As a result, engineers should opt for designing out-of-the-box energy efficient and future-proof solutions to meet their customers’ needs.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, commercial building lighting and HVAC represent over 50% of total U.S. electricity consumption. By incorporating the use of high efficiency lighting equipment into design—whether its LEDs, occupancy sensing, daylighting, or tuning— you can significantly reduce carbon emissions, increase savings with lower installed cost, improve risk management, and enhance the overall building value with a superior end user experience.
